We are a little over a month out until the San Francisco 49ers report to training camp. On Monday morning the NFL announced the 49ers would report to training camp on July 26. As usual, the camp will be mostly held at the SAP Performance Facility in Santa Clara.
For now, that’s the only date that we have. The rest of the training camp schedule will likely be announced a couple of weeks before the team reports to camp. Here are some other key dates that we know before the season gets here:
- Monday, July 15: Deadline for any club to sign franchise player (49ers, Robbie Gould) to a multi-year contract, 1 p.m. (PT)
- Friday, July 26: Reporting date for veterans and rookies, Santa Clara.
- Saturday, July 27: First practice of training camp, Santa Clara.
- Monday, July 29: First padded practice of training camp, Santa Clara.
- Friday, Aug. 16: Joint practice with Denver in Englewood, Colorado.
- Saturday, Aug. 17: Joint practice with Denver in Englewood, Colorado.
- Saturday, Aug. 31: Prior to 1 p.m. (PT), all NFL teams must reduce rosters to a maximum of 53 players.
The preseason schedule should have the 49ers on TV for perhaps three of their four preseason games. The Broncos game will be televised on ESPN. Their opener against the Dallas Cowboys is against the Dallas Cowboys. They’ll be on TV. Week 3 is a dress rehearsal against the Kansas City Chiefs. I’d bet that the game is televised as well.
For those interested, Article 23 of the CBA is about training camp. Section 5:
No veteran player other than quarterbacks and injured players, will be required to report to a Club’s official preseason training camp earlier than fifteen days (including one day for physical examinations, meetings, classroom instruction, running, and conditioning) prior to his Club’s first scheduled preseason game or July 15, whichever is later.
